This kind of integrated building design and construction process departs radically from the approach used today, in which each discipline in the fragmented development process performs its work largely in isolation from the other and often with very different driving goals. Its widespread adoption will require new channels, tools, and methodologies for collaborative communication, problem solving, and decision making across these disciplines. Restructuring compensation and incentives may also be necessary—for example, basing a portion of fees, commissions, and rental incomes on how successfully the building achieves targeted performance requirements.
Through wireless sensors and controls, energy using components will monitor when and how much they are needed and will adjust their operation accordingly. Individualized control of lighting, ventilation, and thermal conditioning will become possible, and user profiles that specify personal environmental preferences will follow an individual through a building or group of buildings. Uniform protocols will allow control devices to talk to each other and communicate externally. Buildings will aggregate performance information, self-diagnose and correct problems, and alert users to causes of substandard operation.
